Water to Dust 


California is seeing and feeling the impact of rising temperatures caused by man made climate change, as business as usual output of CO2’s are affecting people’s lives and their surrounding landscapes.


 Historic droughts are taking their toll, affecting food security and water availability, altering the landscape and causing more aggressive fires that have destroyed thousands of homes just in the last year, while in the Sierra Nevada mountains 149 million trees have died.


The project has for the past 3 years been documenting what this looks like and its effects on different people and communities around the state.
